LaGrange placed three players on the USA South All-Conference football teams as announced by the conference office. This marks the first time since 2014 the Panthers have placed three players on the teams.

Senior Marcus Campbell repeated as a first team receiver. Campbell joins former All-American linebacker Andre Carter to be a first team selection back-to-back years. He is third on the school's career receiving yards list with 1,946 and tied for third in receptions with 147. This season, Campbell was second in the conference in receptions (55), receiving yards (781), and receiving touchdowns (7). 

Sophomore Tyler Benjamin was a second team selection at receiver. Benjamin had 27 catches for 509 yards and four touchdowns. Joining Benjamin on the second team was junior offensive lineman Akeem Peterson. Peterson is a two-year starter on the line for the Panthers. He started all 10 games this season at right tackle. Peterson was also the team's representative on the conference's All-Sportsmanship team.
